Over the summer I received an email from Celia with an offer she knew I wouldn't be able to resist - would I like some free fabric from her new fabric collection to do what I liked with and blog about? I didn't take long to reply and very soon a lovely parcel arrived
which contained three pieces of the most gorgeous printed linen cotton canvas in beautiful designs and colours.
I decided to use the 'stone' hearts design to make a very simple cushion as I knew it would be perfect in my lounge.
Just some rounded corners and on the back a co-ordininating plain fabric with some beautiful matching buttons I found to set off Celia's lovely design
and it looks perfect on my sofa.
Next I decided to make myself a case for my work iPad using the two designs in the 'sea' colourway.
It's padded and I used a co-ordinating fabric to line it
I used a different heart on the back
and the elastic pops round the button to secure it.
I'm going to enjoy using this case in all the schools that I visit this year.
You can buy all of Celia's fabrics here from her Spoonflower shop
Now some of you may be wondering why this post is titled 'part 1' - it's because, due to a supply failure (ie I've run out of something I need to finish it and, due to manic work commitments, haven't been able to get anywhere to get some more!) the other item I'm making is still a work in progress - but here's a little taster of it
It will be revealed asap, I promise.
Thank you Celia letting me have some of these lovely fabrics to play with - do pop over to her blog and those of the other secret sewers, Tracy and Gina, to see what they made too - there are some amazing things :-).
Edited - 'unfinished project' is now finished and blogged about here (there's a give-away too!)
